   Update to the Process for Selection of Trustees for the IETF Trust
                    draft-ietf-iasa2-trust-update-03

Abstract

   This memo updates the process for selection of trustees for the IETF
   Trust.  Previously, the Internet Administrative Oversight Committee
   (IAOC) members also acted as trustees, but the IAOC has been
   eliminated as part of an update of the structure of the Internet
   Administrative Support Activity (IASA).  This memo specifies that the
   trustees shall be selected separately.

   This memo obsoletes RFC 4371.  The changes relate only to the
   selection of trustees.  All other aspects of the IETF Trust remain as
   they are today.

1.  Introduction

   This memo updates the process for selection of trustees for the IETF
   Trust.  Previously, the Internet Administrative Oversight Committee
   (IAOC) members also acted as trustees, but the IAOC has been
   eliminated as part of an update of the structure of the Internet
   Administrative Support Activity (IASA).  This memo specifies that the
   trustees shall be selected separately.  See Section 3.

   This memo obsoletes RFC 4371.  The changes relate only to the
   selection of trustees.  All other aspects of the IETF Trust remain as
   they are today.  Section 2 copies the definition as it was in RFC
   4371, only leaving out the part about trustee selection and adding a
   reference to the IETF Trust website.

   For a discussion of why this change is needed and a rationale for
   these specific changes, see [I-D.ietf-iasa2-trust-rationale].

2.  IETF Trust

   A Trust ("the IETF Trust") has been formed for the purpose of
   acquiring, holding, maintaining, and licensing certain existing and
   future intellectual property and other property used in connection
   with the administration of the IETF.  The Trust was formed by the
   signatures of its Settlors and initial Trustees.  The Settlors, who
   contributed initial intellectual property to the Trust, were ISOC and
